When a tooth is lost as a consequence of trauma or illness, there may be unpleasant side effects such quick bone loss, speech problems, or altered chewing habits. The patient’s health and quality of life can be greatly enhanced when a dental implant is utilised to replace a missing tooth.
Dental implant systems are made up of an implant body, an abutment, and, in some cases, an abutment fixation screw. The dental implant abutment is frequently secured to the implant body using an abutment fixation screw before extending through the gums into the mouth to support the linked artificial teeth.
